Publisher's Summary

The Diary of Anne Frank is read and loved by children throughout the world. Yet few of those readers know what life was really like for the young Jewish girl before and after she wrote her famous diary.

Written in a lively yet sympathetic style, Anne Frank’s Story follows Anne Frank from her birth in Germany and her happy childhood in Amsterdam through the years she and her family spent in hiding from the Nazis, to her imprisonment and eventual death in the concentration camps.

“This book gives children the opportunity to meet Anne Frank, to know her story and her destiny, and to learn that discrimination in every form is evil and inhuman.” - Buddy Elias, first cousin to Anne Frank

Carol Ann Lee was born in Yorkshire, England, in 1969. She began work on a biography of Anne Frank when she was 18 years old, but she put it aside while she attended college at Manchester University. In 1998 her book Roses from the Earth: The Biography of Anne Frank was published to critical acclaim. Anne Frank’s Story is her second book. Carol Ann Lee is married and lives in Amsterdam.

Critic Reviews

“Marvelously read by Barbara Rosenblat. There are a few instances where her voice catches due to the emotional nature of the text she is reading.” ( Large Print Reviews)

Captivating Account of an Extraordinary Life

Wonderfully written and narrated!
Listed in one sitting with my 9 year old prior to reading Ann Frank's Diary itself. The book gave detailed, concise and captivating account of Anne's extraordinary life without taking away from future reading of the diary. Really helped set the scene and provide understanding and context for my 9 year old of Anne's life.
Highly recommend for all ages!
